Re: Open Type Features in Libre Office

The problem is, it's not for me. My font has several features that I'm writing a manual for, and I wanted to provide instructions for Word and a free program for those that don't have Word. Well, I guess all I can do is explain how it works. If it's too annoying for the users, they'll have to decide...

Re: Open Type Features in Libre Office

Thanks!
That's really anything else but user friendly, but well .... guess I have to put up with this for the lack of free alternatives.

Open Type Features in Libre Office

Hi! I'm finally done with my font and now trying out what other (free) software but Word I can use it in with all my Open Type Features. Right now I'm playing around with LibreOffice, but it has ligatures and even contextual alternates turned on by default, which I don't want. Does anybody know how ...

Re: Glyph Properties: Extra Info

You can select all glyphs and set the type to "Automatic" from the right-click menu. Okay thanks. I did that right away. You can run a Transform script to reset the offset of all glyphs back to zero. I am not sure how or why it happens. Good to know. I'll do that when I'm done with everything else....

Problem with calt preview

I just noticed that the preview for Contextual Alternates doesn't work right in the OTD. My normal font looks like this: calt2.jpg I have alternative letters with the calt feature. As you can see, the calt box is not checked on the left side, yet the preview displays the alternative letters. calt1.j...

Glyph Properties: Extra Info

I've noticed that a bunch of my glyphs have this setting, saying "Ligature 3" below the box for "Automatic". I've seen "Ligature 2" too. I assume this number says how many glyphs in a ligature put out this glyph. Is this correct? If so, I just wondered that some glyphs don't have the setting "Automa...

Re: OpenType Designer remembering what I did

Oh, I never realized that I could just click on something in the preview to jump somewhere.
I'll try this tomorrow. Thanks for the tip!

OpenType Designer remembering what I did

There's one thing that keeps slowing me down a lot, so if possible it would be very much appreciated if it could be improved: It would be awesome if OTD would remember what I did last and stay there. For instance, when working on a kerning pair, whenever I leave the OTD to test it and then re-open t...

Okay.
So far I didn't see anything happen. If I do, I'll report it.

Re: Weird thing happening with points

In point mode, right-click and select Round XY Coordinates if you want to round coordinates values while designing your outlines. I've tried this and now moving the outlines doesn't cause the described issue. Can you send the project file to us? Yes, I'll send it via email. As I said, the screensho...

Re: Weird thing happening with points

Open the Validation Toolbar and fix any issues. Try right-click, optimise. Thank you very much, optimize works more ore less. It sometimes changes the outline in a not desired way though. If the outline is tiny (e.g. only a few units in height or width), then this can happen as fonts use rounded va...

Weird thing happening with points

There's something strange going on when I'm moving outlines. I imported a letter made in Corel Draw and it showed fine with no faulty points. But then I moved it to its correct place and suddenly a red point appeared and part of the previously smooth outline was cut off. weird1.jpg Just moving it to...
